Tights games mark end of sea­son

Pilbara News - - Sport - Greg Emms

Satur­day saw the last of the home and away rounds for the 2016 Kar­ratha District Junior Soccer junior com­pe­ti­tion.

In the 14s Salt needed to beat Nickol 3 to keep their fi­nals hopes alive, but de­spite their best ef­forts they could not break through the Nickol de­fence, with Nickol 3 run­ning out the win­ners.

The sec­ond game saw Nickol 1 play Nickol 2 in a close match with both teams work­ing hard.

In the end Nickol 2 took the hon­ours by a nar­row mar­gin.

In the late game, Glory played Wick­ham. Glory took the early lead but a very de­ter­mined Wick­ham played their way back into the match get­ting the equaliser late in the sec­ond half. A late, suc­cess­fully-taken penalty shot by Glory was the dif­fer­ence be­tween the two teams.

In the 18s the early game saw the derby match be­tween Nickol 1 and Nickol 2.

Early on this was a closely con­tested game but in the end, Nickol 1 ran out com­fort­able win­ners.

In the sec­ond game, Glory played Salt.

Glory took the early lead and, de­spite Salt’s best ef­forts, took the nar­row­est of leads into half-time. In the sec­ond half, Salt got the equaliser and de­spite the best ef­forts of Glory, Salt kept it that way un­til an ex­cel­lent ef­fort in front of goal by Michael Baker put Glory back in front.

Glory man­aged to keep Salt out to run out win­ners by a sin­gle goal. Con­grat­u­la­tions to both teams on what was a very en­ter­tain­ing match.

This Satur­day sees the fi­nals with Nickol 2 play­ing Nickol 1 for third and fourth start­ing at 3pm fol­lowed by Glory and Nickol 3 at 4:30pm in the 14’s grand fi­nal. In the 18’s age group, Glory will play Nickol 1 in the Grand fi­nal with that match start­ing at 6:30pm at Pegs Creek Oval.
